About Out Of Africa

How Out of Africa Got Started: Victor Lulla, a native New Yorker living in Los Angeles, has long nurtured interests in healthy lifestyles, the environment, and social responsibility. After briefly considering an early retirement after the sale of his electronics firm in 2002, he instead created California Inside & Out, a manufacturing and distribution company that developed and marketed natural skin and body care products, based in Venice, CA.

Gilles Adamon, owner of Natura Sarl, headquartered in Benin, West Africa, attended the 2005 Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, CA hoping to find a distributor for his shea butter cosmetic products. As luck would have it, Victor was at the Expo looking for an interesting opportunity to help expand his product line. The two men found that they shared not only an interest in natural products, but in social responsibility as well. A friendship ensued and Out of Africa was founded later that year as an exclusive joint venture.

Lulla purchased state of the art production equipment and raw materials, while Adamon’s team, in collaboration with a West African women’s cooperative, supplied locally-source pure unrefined shea butter. The company-owned factory in Benin now produces 200,000 bars of soap a month, along with an expanding array of other shea butter products. The products are shipped to California Inside & Out for distribution under the trademarked brand Out of Africa.

Out of Africa's “other” mission: Producing premium quality skincare products is only half of their story. Lulla and Adamon’s partnership supports several women’s cooperatives and helps to create jobs in democratic Benin, West Africa. Out of Africa shea butter skincare also sponsors a groundbreaking project in Benin called School Children Unite. A portion of all sales is being donated to this global leadership initiative.

Native to Africa in a 3,500 mile-wide dry-land zone south of the Sahara desert and north of the tropical rainforest. In 20 countries, notably Benin, Burkina Faso, Cote d'ivoire, Ghana, Guinea, Mali, Nigeria and Togo. Traditionally managed and harvested in the farmlands of Africa. Trade promotes sustainable production, therefore good option for organic and fair-trade certification.



Benefits of Shea Butter
Shea's moisturizing and regenerative properties have led to traditional applications such as protecting skin against UV light and reducing inflammation, stretch marks, and wrinkles. Whole unrefined 'virgin' butter is a preferred ingredient for use in natural cosmetic products.Pharmaceutical products are being developed with clinical trials underway for the treatment of eczema,arthritis, high cholesterol, etc.

The Chemistry of Shea Butter
Dry shea kernels contain 50% oil or fat of which 3647% is stearin and 33-50% is olein. An unsaponifiable fraction (2-11 %) includes a range of chemicals with known bioactive properties:
  • Antioxidants such as tocopherols (vitamin E), carotenoids (precursors to vitamin A) and flavonoids (including catechins)

    I recommend this product!
    I hate it that Lucky Vitamin dropped this product from my order. I love shea butter products and this was my favorite. I like to melt it in my hands, then use on legs, feet, arms, hands, and especially face. The grapefruit smell is such a boost. I hope you get it back soon. I am on my last one.
